IV iii. Watch your Thoughts

1. How does Swami ask women to 'Watch their thoughts'?

Mind is responsible for the conditions of surroundings.
Sathya Sai Baba, 30 Jan 1978
   
Women must realise the enormous power of the mind for good or evil and see that its power is used only for doing good. The mind can make a person a demon or Divine. The mind is under the control of the intellect. The intellect is governed by the Aathma. Self-realisation will bring about control over everything.
Sathya Sai Baba, 19 Nov 1996
   
There are two terms Apeksha (liking) and Upeksha (dislike or disinterestedness). We should have no liking for those who indulge in bad deeds or entertain bad thoughts. They should be kept at arm's length. Keep away from all those who are filled with bad thoughts, indulge in bad talk and bad actions. This is Upeksha.
Sathya Sai Baba, 20 Jun 1989
   
Girl students! By resorting to wrong path for the sake of momentary happiness, one has to undergo sorrow, a hundred fold. Bad and silly thoughts give momentary joy, but their repurcussions will be terrible.
Sathya Sai Baba, 23 Jul 1974
